  3. tangtang scored this whisky 96 points Expert Senior

    A really excellent sherry aged malt.
    very complex smell and taste experience.
    the dried fruits and plums have the upper hand, however, without covering the barrel influence of 40 years of storage.
    Unfortunately it was only a 15ml sample. But I will definitely try again.
